Tombow Announces Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship

Tombow is proud to announce the Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship to aid three promising art students with tuition costs.

Tombow’s Create Your Best Work Art Scholarship is available to high school seniors graduating by May 2019 and college freshmen and sophomores in the United States. To qualify, students must be currently enrolled or accepted and seeking a visual arts degree at a U.S. university, college or art school.

“At Tombow, we know that it takes the best product to create your best work,” said Director of Marketing Cathy Daniel. “And we want to help equip young artists with the tools to flourish in their industry.”

The top three applicants will be awarded non-renewable scholarships to be used toward tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment required by the educational institution for the upcoming school year starting in Fall 2019.

The grand prize winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship, and two runners-up will each receive a $2,500 scholarship. Tombow will notify scholarship recipients, and distribution of the scholarship will be made directly to each recipient.

Scholarship recipients will also receive a package of Tombow products for use in their works, with an approximate retail value of $500. In addition, the high school that the student graduated from will receive a package of Tombow products, with an approximate retail value of $500.

Product-only awards in the amount of $100 will be made to five additional runners-up. Awards will be distributed in July 2019.

Application deadline for the scholarship is March 31, 2019 – applications should be submitted digitally and include a portfolio, artist’s statement, letter(s) of recommendation and transcripts. Students can download applications and find more information about applying at
